Harlequin Face

Thanaka was painted on his while face

Shot in Central Yangon, Myanmar.

The youngster I met in the streets painted thanaka on his face. Not only the cheek but also the whole of his face was painted. The surface of his face was dappled like a work of a rude plasterer.

Perhaps he thought he applied camouflage face paint like a soldier. Yet I thought to walk with such white face was highly visible in the city center. In fact, he was easy to notice and I talked to him as soon as I found him.
